    Honestly, the HPI trepador is a great A/T tire. Squat for a track tire but hooks up pretty good everywhere else and it looks fantastic. People unload them left and right on the bay...

    For scale looks and good performance in A/T conditions, I really like the Trenchers. The Gladiators are great too but give up a bit on the scale appearing side!

    Kwitty, you are correct on the mud flaps. Already trimmed them down once but they need more. I was forced into mounting them so low because of the stock bumper. It would have been OK on the RPM...
